Impact & Results Score

Score
100/100
Program Name: Newborn Health
Program Name: Newborn Health

Note: The Impact & Results score currently has no effect on the nonprofit's Star Rating.

The Impact & Results score is a measure of how well a nonprofit delivers on its stated mission. To issue a score, Charity Navigator estimates the actual impact the nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determines whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact. Learn more about our Impact & Results methodology here.

Program Activities
D-Rev designs, develops, licenses and distributes affordable phototherapy devices to treat jaundiced newborns in low-resource health facilities.
Impact Statement
$540 provides an additional year of healthy life to a jaundiced newborn.
Assessment Benchmark
Impact & Results scores of community health programs are based on the cost of a disability-adjusted life year (DALY) averted relative to the G.D.P. per capita of the country in which the program operates. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they avert a DALY for less than than the G.D.P. per capita, and a score of 75 if they avert a DALY for less than three times G.D.P. per capita. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the threshold for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 50.
Methodology
ImpactMatters analyzed publicly available data to rate the cost-effectiveness of D-Rev Design for the Other Ninety Percent.
Data Source
D-Rev collected outcome data on devices sold, survey data on access to neonatal phototherapy, and the disability-adjusted life year (DALY) weight of kernicterus reported by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (Global Burden of Disease).
Method for Attributing Outcomes
We model counterfactual success using D-Rev and Stanford University's fieldwork on the number of hospitals providing effective jaundice treatment, and Bhutani et al.'s research on the burden of disease associated with hyperbilirubinemia.
